The decision has finally been made: LeBron James is headed back to Cleveland.
Four years after departing for Miami, James unleashed a media frenzy Friday by announcing through an essay to Sports Illustrated's Lee Jenkins that he is returning to the Cavaliers.
So what comes next?
As has been widely speculated, James' decision could have a major impact on the Timberwolves if the Cavaliers now decide to pursue a deal to land All-Star forward Kevin Love.
It is unclear exactly what pieces that trade could include, but it is thought that No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins would be involved in a potential deal between the Cavs and Wolves.
Let the speculation and buzz continue.
For those who said Flip had to trade Love before the draft, this was what he was envisioning: A new bidding war after LeBron domino fell— Jon Krawczynski (@APkrawczynski) July 11, 2014
Also - VERY interesting that LeBron didn't mention Wiggins or Bennett in that mini-essay. Makes me wonder if Kevin Love is the next domino.— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) July 11, 2014
At the moment, Cavaliers rookie swingman Andrew Wiggins' camp believes he won't be traded to Minnesota for Kevin Love.— Marc J. Spears (@SpearsNBAYahoo) July 11, 2014
Source close to situation says Kevin Love indeed "intrigued" by idea of being dealt to Cavs and would commit long there if traded there— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 11, 2014
